Executive Protection

Executive Defense Team specializes in the protection of high-profile individuals, their loved ones, their property and their business interests. For over two decades, EDT has provided security services to those individuals firmly in the public eye, offering discrete and unsurpassed safeguards against any potential threat.

Our protectors are vetted professionals who are consummately skilled in knowing not only what to do, but when not to do it. They know how to get physical when it is necessary, but are also experts in knowing how to identify and deescalate tensions and forestall violent incidents in advance. They hide in plain sight, always watching for any potential threats to ensure your team’s safety without any reduction of personal comfort, quality of relationships or performance of their employment duties.

Our protectors are well-spoken, personable and are contracted to ensure complete confidentiality. They address all of your security needs in a way that is specifically tailored to the Executive, providing you with an experience that is supremely well-executed and entirely seamless.

I look forward to discussing your specific situation, confidently and without charge to demonstrate why the EDT approach to professional accompaniment makes it an eminently suitable choice for your personal protection.
